The Rays came within three outs of becoming the first team to throw a perfect game with multiple pitchers. Ryne Stanek and Ryan Yarbrough retired the first 24 Orioles batters on Sunday as Tampa Bay won 4-1 and took three of four games in the series.

Plus the NFL is interested in expanding the season to 18-games while each player would only play 16 games a year, and Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer played the longest Wimbledon final ever, lasting nearly five hours.
